Hi, I am Verity.
I am an award winning photographer from Didcot in Oxfordshire and I have been specializing in maternity and newborn baby photography for over 9 years.
I first picked up a camera as a child, and by the time I was a young teenager, I knew that taking photos of people was what I most wanted to do. I went to university to study photography, and since then, have continued my education by regularly going on training courses with photographers I greatly admire.
I am almost the youngest out of my siblings and have over 35 nephews and neices. So I have pretty much been the on call babysitter for the past 20 years! I mean who else would you call when you go into labour in the middle of the night, with three small children asleep in their beds, if not your sister? This does mean that, although I don't yet have any children of my own, I have oodles of experience in holding and looking after newborn babies, while entertaining their toddler siblings.
My speciality is photographing families with brand new babies, but really my desire is to encourage more mums to stop hiding at the back (or worse behind the camera) and step into the spotlight. We all know that mums are the centre point of a family, the pin that holds everything together, and I want to celebrate them in beautiful portraits.
One day all your children will have left is pictures of you. Make sure that you are in them. No matter what your hair looks like, your makeup or your body. They won't care about any of that, they will just want to see you.
So I invite you to step forward, push through those self concious feelings, and embrace this moment because it won't come again. From pregnancy, through those precious first few weeks with a newborn, up to full families. Every family deserves a beautiful portrait hanging with pride on their wall.
Let me capture yours.
